A wonderful film from the 1950s. All cars had to be made before 1917 to qualify. Take a look at the "modern cars" of the day. The film shows the cars as they pass through the streets of London and then as they arrive in Brighton. This event still goes on today. The film Geneveve was all about this very "race" Its all very British old chap, wot ho.
